so let me get this straight this guy was projected for the longest time as a top 3 pick and there he is sittign at 30 and you WANT to TAKE him........um if you know anything about football there has got to be an obvious issue with the guy and his health if he is falling that far.
so lets see take a flyer on a guy with a bum knee or go for a guy who can maybe give you kris jenkins type of play for many years to come in the middle but at times also has the ability to move to the outside (unlike jenkins) and give you the pass rush you so need, have been wanting all year, ???????
no brainer. now guy out there and get yourself a second round safety and call it a day
Whoever drafts this kid is going to get the best of him. He will be instantly motivated to prove everyone wrong. He is going to be pissed and play with an attitude - until (God forbid) his knee goes out. I hope that he has a productive career - except when he plays against us. ;)
let me start this by saying i am thrilled with the pick we made.
that being said ... i would not have minded if we took Bowers that low in the first round. He may have knee issues, but the guy is a monster. I doubt he will have longevity, so I am ok with the non-pick. But I bet Bowers is a beast for anywhere between 5-6 years.
